Rachel and Monica demand that Chandler and Joey get rid of their pet birds when the rooster starts to crow incessantly every morning before sunrise. The four of them also have an argument about who knows whom better, which results in Ross designing a trivia quiz with high stakes: if the men lose, they give up their pets, but if the women lose, they switch apartments with the men. The result comes down to a tie breaker, which the girls lose, thereby forcing them to move. Meanwhile, the embryos from Frank Jr. and Alice have been successfully implanted into Phoebe's uterus, leading to a tense wait that ultimately results in Phoebe’s pregnancy albeit much pressure from knowing that the chance of pregnancy is quite slim, and the couple has invested all their life savings for the IVF.

When he later goes to her apartment to apologize, he discovers that Kathy has started sleeping with Nick, even though the latter two did not when Chandler confronted Kathy about her possible infidelity. Rachel is disgruntled after Bloomingdale’s eliminates her department and “demotes” her to be a personal shopper in another department. However, her job attitude improves when she meets a handsome customer named Joshua.

Much to Ross’s chagrin, he agrees to meet Emily and take her to the opera concert. In the end, Ross and Emily hit it off and ultimately end up spending the weekend together at a Bed & Breakfast in Vermont, whereas Rachel is unable to enter the club that she has been invited to due to a mix-up and ends up not meeting Joshua at all.
